This week students are starting their ABC books. These books are created using only the letters they currently know and they illustrate each page with a picture that has meaning to them and matches the sound that the letter makes. These books can be read just with letter names or they can be read with letter sounds. The students love creating their own books for their independent reading boxes.
Everyone got their very own "reading finger" to help their eyes know where to look on the page and to help reinforce the one to one matching when reading.
As if a sticker book wasn't enough fun... today we added a "reading finger" and the room erupted with excitement all over again.
